Cailin Annamh has found his form over fences and produced an excellent run behind Jacksonlady at Galway. He's making his handicap debut and has plenty of weight but should go well. Shanpallas ran out in the Galway Plate but almost made amends a couple of days later over hurdles. He can go well though BALNASLOW, who did very well for a virtual novice when third in the Plate, is making such good progress that he'll be difficult to beat. Aranhill Chief is on a four-timer and though 6lb higher for his latest success at Galway he's on a lower mark than over hurdles so looks well in. Behemoth is a very nice chasing prospect for the future and, though this is tough, his low weight can see him involved in the finish.
